Shaved Fennel Salad


This simple salad is adapted from a recipe from Alice Water’s The Art of Simple Cooking.   It is quite simple, but you do have to like the taste of fennel.  And I do love the subtle sweet flavor of this plant.

I took one bulb of fennel and a vegetable peeler and began shaving the bulb until I had a pile of paper thin pieces.  I layered them in a bowl.  Then I took a handful of thinly sliced white mushrooms and layered over that.  I made a simple vinaigrette and splashed a bit over the top followed by a handful of shaved parmesan cheese and a few grinds of black pepper and a pinch of salt.     That’s it.

  1. I am going to try this . I did have fennel growing in my garden. They come back all by themselves. Have not watered my garden in the last two months. I think the fennel bulb will come back.
